"That's not correct," Ms Wasserman replied, but did not elaborate on what details were or were not accurate.

Downing Street played down criticisms of David Cameron for posing for a selfie photograph during Nelson Mandela's memorial service yesterday.
Cameron was pictured with US President Obama and Danish Prime Minister Hell Thorning-Schmidt.
The picture immediately went viral, as many social media users felt the smily picture was inappropriate. The Prime Minister's spokesperson said:
I think what the PM would say about yesterday is it was very much a celebration of Nelson Mandela and his life and his achievements.
I am sure many of us were watching the pictures from it and I think it did come across, and rightly so, as a marking and a celebration of Mr Mandela's life. You had plenty of words from the Prime Minister and leaders from around the world that attest to that.
US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe Victoria Nuland said she clearly explained to the Ukrainian Prime Minister Yabnukovich that what happened last night was "absolutely impermissible in a democratic society".
ITV News Africa correspondent Rohit Kachroo has tweeted:
Just viewed Nelson Mandela, at peace in Pretoria's Union Buildings. His familiar face is visible in the half-open casket.
The funeral of Kirsty Nelis, a police constable who died in the Glasgow helicopter crash will take place on Wednesday.
Family, friends and colleagues will attend the service at St Andrew's Cathedral in Glasgow, near the scene of the accident at the Clutha pub which killed nine people.
Musician Bono, supermodel Naomi Campbell and South Africa's President Jacob Zuma are among those who have visited Nelson Mandela's coffin today in Pretoria.
A sign language interpreter "made up his own signs" at Nelson Mandela's memorial yesterday, South Africa's deaf federation said.
Braam Jordaan, of the World Deaf Federation, told SBS website: "I was really upset and humiliated. He made up his own signs. What happened at the memorial service is truly disgraceful thing to see, it should not happen at all.
"What happened today will be forever aligned with Nelson Mandela & Deaf Community, thanks to this fake interpreter."
Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, added: "He's a complete fraud. He wasn't even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around."
Nelson Mandela's ex-wife Winnie and widow Graca Machel have visited his coffin in Pretoria where his body will lie in state for three days.
